I don't know about you, but Mr. Bear is sick and tired of eating seafood in Western establishments (in his words, "white people restaurants"). He perpetually questions why a lobster tail with some beans on the side cost $35, why the lobster head (arguably the best part of a lobster) is left to be devoured by kitchen staff, and why anyone would even serve a plate of 5 raviolis as a main course. Don't even get him started with crab cakes. Two little crab cakes in the middle of a big plate with some microgreens is a sure way to make him feel depressed. And trust me, when the bill arrives, he will be more than grumpy to remind you that two whole lobsters in Chinatown is $15.99 all year round.
So you can imagine, lobsters for $4.99/lb at Super 88 was like Christmas in September for Mr. Bear. He was so happy he even volunteered to cook! Of course, I managed to squeeze in some veggies, just because we should. Such a light and delicious meal!
